officer. today's chronicle reports tuesday's tragic incident in dublin was not captured by body cameras issued to all bart police officers. now that is because the five officers who entered the building were either not wearing the cameras or did not have them turned on. now the coroner has released the autopsy report of the bart officer killed in that accidental shooting. it shows that sergeant tom smith died from a single gunshot wound to the chest after the bullet passed through a small gap in his bullet proof vest. >> those of us in law enforcement know best, but it always seems that these kind of things happen and they just don't afford 100% protection. its not like a bomb suit or a suit of armor. >> investigators have still not given public information exactly how the deadly shooting unfolded. the funeral for sergeant smith will be held at the neighborhood church of castro valley next wednesday morning.
